War, weapons & victims : legal responses: Journals

Introduction [journals only]

A journal is a regular publication (monthly, yearly, etc.) in which you will find academic and research articles. The articles present current research and are critiqued by experts before publication, so you can be confident of their quality. The majority of journals held by the Bodleian Libraries in both physical and electronic formats can be searched via SOLO, as can the individual articles within ejournals.

On this page you will find recommended journals and guidance on how to search for and access print and ejournals.


The first group of links show specialist titles in this area of PIL which you may not have encountered before. This list makes no claim to be comprehensive! Following the individual journal links are some databases which also include full-text law journals which may also include useful articles. 

The LawBod's public international law journave shelf marks starting Internat 300.
Volumes/Issues from 2000 onwards are on Floor 3, shevled before the monograph collection begins.
Journal issues/volumes 1999 & older are on the ground floor in rolling cases near the large computer room.
Within each journal block, the arrangement is then alphabetical, by the first word of the journal's title.
